Review:

"The Enseignères is superb this year, with a classic bouquet of flowers, white peach and struck match. On the palate, the wine is intense, concentrated and tight-knit, with a deep core and brisk acids in a medium-full format. A lovely rendition of this superior village lieu dit. - William Kelley"

Chartron et Trebuchet Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Chalumeaux 2015

Golden yellow with green highlights. The light toasted notes of roasted fruits are balanced by the serious mineral notes. The two characters are found again on the palate with a remarkable acidity.
Located South of the Cote de Beaune, the vineyards surround the village of Puligny Montrachet. Along with Chassagne Montrachet, it shares the undisputed prince of all dry white wines : Grand Cru Montrachet. The Climat "Les Chalumeaux" is close to Meursault vineyard.

Traditional vinification. The grapes are pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery in pneumatic presses. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out in oak barrels, 50% new oak. The wine is aged for 18 months in oak barrels with regular stirring to gain depth and complexity.

Blends elegantly with meat and fish with a noble and beautiful texture (veal or chicken in white sauce, roasted sea bass, but also foie gras) or grilled seafood and sauce (shrimp, lobster, ...). Delicious as an aperitif and with cheeses with a light taste (Camembert, Brie, Blue Cheese, Goat Cheese, Gruyere...)

Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Blanc Les Saussots 2016

A medium yellow straw color in the glass. On the nose, you will find layers aromas of cured lemon and hints of coconut and mango. On the palate, the juice has clean flavor, fresh acidity, and excellent balance. Vanilla notes follow through to the slightly creamy finish. 

 

Drink this one now or over the next 3 to 4 years.

The Domaine Chavy-Chouet Estate
Hubert Chavy-Chouet is a handsome, agile and disarmingly charming individual with a reputation of being quite the ladies' man.  He might even point out the fact that he closely resembles Bruce Willis, and why not flatter him by agreeing. The day we visited, in January 2006, it was cold and very wintry, and the winery and house, in the middle of Meursault, were covered with a thick layer of new snow.  Hubert was dressed rather punkish-like with zippered jeans, shaved head and two earrings in one ear, with his faithful English Bulldog at his side. Always the joker, he pretended to slip in the snow and nearly drop the bottles of wine he was bringing up from his cellar beneath his house.
Hubert Chavy-Chouet is the seventh generation to make wine in his family. He began his winery in 1982 and his son and daughter are hoping to carry on the family tradition. Chavy-Chouet  is one of the oldest families in Puligny-Montrachet. The Ropiteau family (on his mother's side) is the oldest one in Meursault.

The Domaine Chavy-Chouet Vineyard
This is an 11 hectare-domaine (27.17 acres) that produces wine from 15 A.O.C.'s (80% White, 20% Red). The vineyard is divided into 70 parcels planted to vines that are 40 years old or more. He uses Gillet as his cooper, who blends oak from Nevers, Limousin and Allier forests. The barrels receive medium toast.  Hubert does not fine or filter his wines, as he prefers their purity to shine through.

Wimmer Gruner Veltliner 2017 (liter)

Crisp lime flavors, white pepper and lentils, followed by a mouthful of mineral notes and gooseberry. A long lingering finish
